‘Deprived by Guerrero Jr’ Toronto Bisset salary hearing avoided and 3-year contract
In 2019, the Toronto Blue Jays’Young Gun’ trio debuted side by side. His debut date varied. What they have in common is the halo of an infielder and his father.
Third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (23), shortstop Bo Bisset (24), and second baseman Cavan Vizio (27). Guerrero Jr. and Vizio’s father are Hall of Fame members. Bisset’s father, Dantey Bisset, is also a slugger with a career batting average of 0.299, 274 homers, and 1141 RBIs during his 14-year MLB career. The reason Biggio is older among the three is because he went through the draft after graduating from college (Notre Dame).
Guerrero Jr. changed his position to first baseman because his defense was unstable as a third baseman. Biggio is currently a utility man who crosses the infield. Only Bisset has stuck with his shortstop since his minor league days. They will become free agents after the 2025 season.
Toronto extended a three-year contract ahead of an annual salary adjustment hearing with shortstop Bisset on the 9th. A hearing was avoided. A three-year contract was announced, but at this time, the annual salary has not been announced.
The club’s three-year contract with Biset is intended to avoid negotiations during the salary adjustment period. Bisset is subject to salary adjustment application before becoming free agent for the 2023 season to the 2025 season. If the club does not give up the contract as a non-tender with Biset, the salary is unconditionally increased. This time, Bisset requested an annual salary of $7.5 million for the 2023 season. However, the club offered $5 million. The gap is huge at $2.5 million.
If the pace of the past two years is maintained, salaries will more than double the current requirement by 2025. In the 2022 season, he had a batting average of 0.299, 24 homers, and 93 RBIs. OPS is 0.802. OPS is the lowest since debut in 2019. However, he recorded the most hits in the American League for the second year in a row.
If the young guns who debuted in the same year rise to stardom at the same time, the club contemplates who to give up. This is because simultaneous contracts are impossible due to the implementation of free agents whose ransom prices are sky-high. It’s hard to even think of a one-club man. A one-club man like Aaron Judge (New York Yankees) is possible only when the interests of the club and the players are aligned.
So is the NBA. The Oklahoma City Thunder is a prime example. Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets) is the second overall pick in the 2007 draft. In 2008, he selected point guard Russell Westbrook (LA Lakers) from UCLA as the No. 4 pick. In 2009, he chose ‘Hairy’ James Harden as No. 3. All of them won the regular season MVP, and the top scorer title a total of 9 times. However, Thunder, unable to secure three players at the same time, traded Harden to the Houston Rockets first and tasted the bad luck of not being able to rise to the top. 토토사이트
Among Toronto’s trio, Biggio’s skills are relatively inferior. It is not a big variable in salary negotiations. Guerrero Jr. and Bisset are the problem. It is unclear whether he will be able to secure long-term contracts while securing both before becoming a free agent. While subject to the same salary manipulation application, Guerrero Jr. signed a contract for an annual salary of $14.5 million last year. That’s double the $7.5 million Bisset was asking for. It is the power of a home run. Home runs are 32-24, RBIs are 97-94. Bisset ranks first in the most hits in the league, but it does not reflect much in his annual salary. The American baseball proverb, “Home run hitters ride limousines, and batting kings ride sedans,” is also compared here.
Guerrero Junior’s performance in the 2022 season was significantly lower than in the 2021 season. The 2021 season has left almost career-class records. In 2021, it was first in the league in six categories: runs scored (123), home runs (48), on-base percentage (0.401), slugging percentage (0.601), OPS (1.002), and total bases (363). In the 2022 season, the OPS also decreased to 0.818. Including expectations for the 2023 season, it jumped from $7.9 million to $14.5 million.
